    Misc Stuff about Life. Part XII

    So this is what a fucked up back report from MRI looks like. December 10th I have surgery to fix this shit. Saw my cardiologist today Pre-Op for surgery is a go. Only have Internal medicine Doctor to sign off now. That will be after Thanksgiving. MK MRI FINDINGS: Lumbar Spine: Nonspecific relative straightening of the lumbar spine, unchanged. L2-3 Grade I retrolisthesis measuring 2.2 mm and redemonstration of L3 on L4 Grade I anterolisthesis measuring approximately 3 mm. Vertebral body heights are maintained. Diffuse lumbar discs desiccation and narrowing from L1-2 to L5-S1. L4-5 annulus fibrosis fissure. Diffuse anterior and posterior vertebral body bone spurrings worst at L2-3. Endplate degenerative fatty changes versus hemangiomas at L2-3 and L3-4. Bone marrow signal is otherwise within normal limits. Redemonstration of L3-L5 laminectomies. Conus terminates at L1 level. Evaluation of disc levels as follows: L1-2: Redemonstration of circumferential posterior disc bulge, epidural lipomatosis, and bilateral facet arthrosis resulting in moderate thecal sac narrowing measuring approximately 5mm AP without foraminal stenosis. L2-3: Redemonstration of circumferential posterior disc bulge, epidural lipomatosis, and bilateral facet arthrosis resulting in severe thecal sac narrowing measuring approximately 4mm AP without mild to moderate bilateral foraminal stenosis. L3-4: Redemonstration of circumferential posterior disc bulge, epidural lipomatosis, and bilateral facet arthrosis resulting in severe thecal sac narrowing measuring transverse 3.8mm and AP 6.3mm with mild right and moderate left foraminal stenosis. The posterior disc bulge is contacting the left exiting L3 nerve root. L4-5: Redemonstration of circumferential posterior disc bulge and bilateral facet arthrosis without significant thecal sac narrowing or foraminal stenosis. L5-S1: Redemonstration of circumferential posterior disc bulge and bilateral facet arthrosis without significant thecal sac narrowing. Mild to moderate right foraminal stenosis with the posterior disc-osteophyte protrusion contacting the right exiting L5 nerve root. Mild degenerative changes in bilateral sacroiliac joints. Fatty muscular atrophy near the sacroiliac joints. Component Results

    Good news, Surgery will be on December 10th, also not as invasive as the other ASS Hat doctor was going to do. I am pleased, have a lot to do in a short time though. The pain will be taken care of soon. MK

    Well today is the day to see the NEW Doctor. Thank you Jesus!!! Hopefully I will leave with a plan to remediate the current pain, address any other issues and get a sound reference as to when I may have surgery. The past few weeks have been absolutely mayhem as far as pain. I have been in pain 24/7 and basically bedridden now 23+ hours a day. I am going Bat Shit crazy!!!!!!!! Wish me luck. MK
  4. book match is inside to inside as if opening a book Take a look at this. it will give you more info. http://www.veneernet.com/matching.html
  5. Here is a short lesson in thicknessing a bookmatch set. After re-saw, place face down (the re saw side)on both pieces to get to rough thickness for both parts. then thickness sand the re-sawn sides. this will keep the book match as close as possible by matching the surface flats to the re saw flat. Otherwise you may have an angle introduced from the re-saw that will make the book match not as desireable. Then you are able to square the edges properly.

    Thanks Carl, I deleted it so as not to be a whiney ass. LOL. I'm just tired of getting screwed around by the doctors and the system. It appears all they want me to do is go away, crawl into a hole and die. mk

    Been down for a while, My PC died, had to build a new one. I went to the Neurosurgeon yesterday. This is the one that has had me going to an infectious disease doctor for 4 months since I have had MSRA staph before and he did not want any complications when time to do surgery. Now the bastard comes up with I must lose 30lbs in 3 months, quit smoking for 3 months minimum, go to Physical therapy for at least 3 months and have steroid injections to my spine for total time 16 weeks. ( 2 injections) Then after doing all of that he MIGHT do surgery on me. WTF? This Asshole should have told me this shit from the fucking start. I have wasted 4 to 5 months waiting to get this done doing what he asked me to do, I am deteriorating at a fast rate and now this fucker wants me to do this? Needless to say, I am fucking pissed off and looking for a new Doctor. I hope that shithead burns in hell. Oh and how the hell does anyone lose 30lbs in 3 months? Even a person in great shape would have problems doing that. RANT Over!!!! MK

    Good luck with the new Job Carl as well as the move. I hope it all works out for you and family. So here's the new body in a very rough stage of rendering, still a lot to do before it's final. I am thinking of trimming the horns down some. Also will add a belly carve and more access to the lower bout.

    Another OLD BRAIN FART, I ordered a new sliding door to replace a large window so we can make a new patio on the side of the house. Somehow OLD Dumbass me got the wrong size in his pea brain. Now I have a special order door that took 6 weeks to get that is too big for the opening. WTF was I thinking? I'm sure that with my back pain and meds I am not at my best game. Damn me!! This is going to be an expensive return. MK update: I didn't get it wrong they did. LOL!!! So now the PITA to return the door and get the correct one. Fuck me another 6 weeks gone unless they will expedite. Waiting for a call. So now the question is do I spend more to open the wall to install the 120" door ( means having to put in a new header which entails bracing up the outer wall/ceiling first , spend more $$$$), Send it back and wait 6 to 8weeks (will charge me for shipping), or use one sideglass and the door in the existing opening and get money back? Have to think on that.

    Enjoy.
  15. I never said it was easy. I understand though.
  16. No problem Joe, I'm an old fart so excuse me, I would like to see the build thread on PG not somewhere else. Yes it is open to all members I commend you on a great instrument. My thoughts are in the spirit of PG that those who put the time in here, posts the good and the bad, should benefit at equal rates. Having no build thread here or at all diminishes my vote. Hopefully going forward we will see many more from you and enjoy your presence and contributions. Mike
